Whether a beginning poet or lover of the art, this class will introduce you to the beauty and complexity of writing and reading poetry, as well as the basics of the workshop model. We will look to image, metaphor, sound, lineation, and structure to write our own poems.
This class takes place online through WetInk. You will receive more information about our partner online platform after registration.
Tiered classes are designed to help you feel confident in progressing through your writing with the appropriate tools, skills, and an understanding of the diverse voices at work in each genre. You may self-select into classes based on where you feel comfortable in a particular genre, and you are welcome to take classes as many times as you would like. (If you have little to no experience in a workshop setting, we recommend starting at Tier I.)
